BULLET REVIEW: New Trent Airbender 2.0 for iPad Air
by Steven B. Combs, Ph.D.
I had an upcoming business trip to take and I was on the lookout for a good portable keyboard case for my iPad Air. There are several keyboard cases on the market, and after reading numerous reviews, I chose the New Trent Airbender 2.0 Keyboard.
While not the most sophisticated case on the market, you can check out my bullet review below to find out why it was the clear choice for my budget.
Excellent functionality, protection and build quality for as little as $60
Vertical orientation functionality which is rare for an iPad keyboard case
Good stability in both horizontal and vertical orientation
Use case as separate stand and keyboard (see gallery below)
Separate iPad Air from keyboard easily and still have protection for the back of the iPad
Keys for home, brightness, virtual keyboard, cut/copy/paste, media, keyboard layouts and lock screen
